Grafton Shopping Centre, Brisbane, Australia

Quiligotti Terrazzo is ideal for shopping centres offering a smooth flooring surface that is suitable for wheeled and high traffic areas. Quiligotti Terrazzo’s unique attributes provide an attractive and practical, easy to clean flooring solution.

A unique feature of Quiligotti Terrazzo is the ability to tailor the appearance to suit a particular architectural and interior design scheme. The aggregate colour and size can be altered along with the tile background colour. Additionally, water jet cutting and other specialist decoration techniques can be used to apply logos or decorative elements to the flooring to create eye-catching entrance or centre pieces, and other bespoke designs.

This choice of colours and design options of Quiligotti Terrazzo played an integral part in the specification for the Grafton Shopping World. A modern light colourway was chosen for the main shopping areas, creating a spacious and contemporary ambiance. A vivid red tile arranged in a square cluster form along side a Dark Grey tile functions as a divider between the main concourse and café and rest areas.

In addition to the design flexibility attributes, many architects and worldwide organisations are interested in the sustainability of flooring solutions. To meet the requirement for reliable sustainability data, Quiligotti sustainability experts have conducted in-depth research into life cycle analysis and costing, carbon footprint and environmental profiles of a range of flooring materials. Terrazzo is considered a highly sustainable material and boasts an environmental profile rating of ‘A’ in the UK Green Guide to Specification compiled by BRE (Building Research Organisation), the World’s leading research organisation for sustainability across the built environment.

The mall was built by and is managed by The McConaghy Group whose shopping centres are renowned for their quality of design and detailed emphasis on shopper comfort and security for added value shopping experience.

Quiligotti Terrazzo product specialists and project teams are pleased to have participated in this fantastic project and are delighted to have provided a modern and sustainable flooring solution that will last for years to come.
